Common Problems after an ABI come under four main headings:
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we deliver neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
"Participation in teen sports and normal activities leads to improved quality of life for children and young people post brain injury and helps to maximise outcomes"
"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
